Tonkin Gulf Incident

Submitted by: Gerry Roberts, CT3 – 5/6/07

My name is Gerry Roberts CT3. About the TJ on August 4th 1964.   I remember that night very well. I was the telephone talker between the XO and Captain Barnhart…I was sick as a dog that day with strep throat, but my Chief had a bottle of Johnson and Johnson’s mouth wash which I gargled and helped me get through out night. Thanks Chief, and thanks to all our crew that kept us going…also a big thanks to Lt. Asche for making this web site a possibility.
